Sangram Singh Hawking

Attributed to The Stipple Master Indian

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 693

The artist known as the Stipple Master of Udaipur was active under the patronage of Amar Singh II (r. 1698–1710) and continued working into the reign of Sangram Singh (r. 1710–34), likely the subject of the painting. The narrative depicts the maharaja’s bird of prey at four separate moments, as if captured in a series of still photographs. A subdued palette applied with stippling (most evident in the treatment of the horse) evokes the European grisaille technique introduced via Mughal art.
